If COVID-19 pandemic conditions allow, Hardy Telecommunications will send two local students on a four-day trip to our nation’s capital, giving them the chance to see our country’s historic sites and meet students from all over the United States.
One student each from Moorefield and East Hardy high schools will be selected to attend the 2022 Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour in Washington, D.C., June 1-5. The trip includes sightseeing to D.C.’s famous landmarks as well as educational sessions to teach today’s youth about the telecommunications industry. Hardy Telecommunications will pay all basic expenses, including travel.
FRS does require that all students be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have proof of vaccination.
Students will hear from Capitol Hill and Federal Communications Commission representatives. Past tours have visited the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, Mount Vernon (home of George Washington), the Vietnam War Memorial, the Smithsonian Museums, the Korean War Memorial, and Arlington National
Applications for the tour may be downloaded and printed by clicking HERE. Applications also may be picked up from Derek Barr at Hardy’s Moorefield Office, telephone 304-530-5000.
